Subject: Showbiz at it's finest hour!
The creativity they used for the show is genius. You will never see anything like that during today's television. I was very impressed with how they were able to entertain with good clean fun. They set the standard for everyone to follow in my opinion. Jerry Lewis is the ultimate goofball. He reminded me of dumb and dumber.
Subject: wow today there is nothing like that on TV
what an amazing show, what creative minds. Unbelievable comedy and all g rated. This is what built our nation. Not x rated comedians who hate people with family values....Today it is hard to find many real comedians who can read the audience and not have to be a pig to get a reaction.

Great nostalgia.I enjoyed it,esp pool room sketch.How the ads have alterd in 50+ years - so innocent.
Subject: The show that brightens your teeth
Interesting comedy, beautifully preserved on kinescope.
The rock and roll performance was.....interesting, and has historical value due to the relative rarity of such footage from 1955.
The original commercials are fun and add some context of the times to the episode.
Subject: The Colgate Comedy Hour.
Season 6, episode 1.

Subject: Sorry Mates, The Best TV Show On The Archive Is.....

The best vintage tv show on Internet Archive. Video and audio quality are superb. Download the MPEG1 version - it's worth waiting for. I've never seen a better kinescope. Was this an early monochrome video tape? The skits were absolutely hilarious. The music was great, especially the early rock band "the bellhops". 56 years later this show loses nothing. Proof again that 21st century tv is pure garbage. Oh what we have lost!
